ABSTRACT
The article offers information on how to determine an energy project that would be a successful and an energy saving project on a limited resource. It states that first thing to do is to analyze the worth of energy costs and use. It mentions that electrical projects could yield more than the overall savings and could have a higher annual rate of return. It adds that tabulating data in an Excel spreadsheet can be an efficient method to compare economic benefits and present projects for approval.
